Great performance, substandard installation.
Installed on an Intel i5-650, with a Gigabyte GA-H55M-USB3 LGA 1156 motherboard. I followed the installation instructions EXACTLY (although somewhat confusing). The holes for the mounting bracket just DID NOT line up. I was able to get all four screws installed, but two of them are cocked sideways at almost a 45 degree angle. I've been installing aftermarket coolers for 15+ years and have never had such a problem install. Otherwise, the cooler is amazing; 9c idle, and VERY quiet. Had to modify my case to accommodate it's MASSIVE size (height). I should have measured first.... Shame on me.
